After stating at least a half dozen different positions on the minimum wage in recent months, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump yesterday said he supports raising the federal minimum wage to “at least $10.”  Since then, other prominent Republicans, including Congressional Republicans seeking reelection, have been running for cover trying to duck the issue.  By their past votes and statements, they’ve all opposed raising the poverty-level federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour.

The Republican platform states: “The minimum wage is an issue that should be handled at the state and local level.” Not even a mention of the federal minimum wage.  And total hypocrisy, because Republicans have almost universally opposed state and local minimum wage increases.

Democrats, meanwhile, have adopted a platform calling for a $15 federal minimum wage.

We’re not letting Republicans in Congress run away and hide!  Join us on Twitter, and send them these messages now!  Retweet these tweets!  Copy them and post them on Twitter yourself as well.  Tell Republicans in Congress that it’s time to raise the federal minimum wage.
